One of my fondest childhood play memories, was at my Grandmother’s green house. The house was full of nooks and different levels and right down the bottom, my Granny kept a box filled with zoo animals. I remember spending hours setting up fences and playing with the animals. It’s interesting to think back on what play memories stand out in my mind and why. I was reminded of this memory when my daughter asked for the animal box I had stored high on a cupboard. You see, I keep some toys stored so they can be rotated. Perhaps, subconsciously, I had stored the animal box because, in my mind, they are special toys. In any case, my daughter had a lovely time setting up the animals, just as I had done when I was a child. It made me happy: remembering.
I’d love to hear about your Play Memories.
